Was a really good experience! The team was very flexible with my needs. I really liked to be volunteer at Yaxché. 🤘🏽🦝

I couldn't be more grateful for the experience I just had, I got to meet the most incredible people because of it. The work I had to do at the reception was pretty easy and allowed me to work remotely at the same time. Bacalar is such a magical town, with lovely people, I got to see the most beautiful places there and since I had two free days a week I also had the opportunity to travel to other places. Francisco was really patient and welcoming. I would definitely come back, thank you the hostel.

The hostel Centro Hostal was an awesome place to spend a month! It was great for me to learn Spanish and exchange English with the team there! They had plenty of volunteers so I made many friends, we cooked together often or went dancing! The hostal is clean with a beautiful garden! Diego & Francisco were very welcoming and flexible with my lack of Spanish speaking! I can't recommend this place enough! As with any volunteer places there's always a thing or two to improve. Here I would say the kitchen needs and update and they can be a bit disorganized but that's ok!

It was an amazing experience. The host and the staff make you feel comfortable and they are on your side whatever you need. It is a stable business and pretty busy, thought the tasks are easy and you get a good training. You have a lot of opportunities to explore the city and the cities around as well. Gorgeous place with various activities. I definitely recommend to everyone, especially if they want to have a second family in Mexico and a joyful experience!!!
